    The most popular are GoSms and Handcent and both are very similar in how they work, customization and options. I used to use GoSms but am now using sliding messaging. It is a bit different in the ui but fun. Try any of them out for a few days, see what you like and uninstall what you don't like. Don't be surprised if there are questions about any (such as “how do I get rid of double text notifications"). Usually there is a simple solution and we can help with the answer.

    Why bloat your phone with more junk apps it doesn't need? I find the texting app that came with the phone to be just fine. It almost never makes a mistake when I'm dictating to it.

    I would highly recommend chomp SMS. Not as many customizations for the looks like go SMS but it is reliable with great features

    My OG app has been showing me for over three months that I have new texts when I have opened every message and scrolled through my entire message history with that person. (Idk if that makes sense but I have another thread where I think I explained it better.)
    So b/c of that I was thinking about finally trying out some other apps.

    I would recommend chomp SMS. Best SMS app I've used. So much so that I paid for the pro version

    A few days ago, I tried Verizon Messages: Verizon Messages - Verizon Wireless, So far, I like it. For the record, I am no fan of Verizon apps and never use them. Verizon Messages is the lone exception. The features I really like are: the Jelly Bean color emoji support, the ability to attach more than a single pic to a (mms) text message, and that it syncs to the Verizon web app on my PC. Prior to installing Verizon Messages, I tried google hangouts but was not impressed. Before hangouts, I was using the stock app.

    I'm ,like you, usually loathe Verizon apps but switched to Verizon Messages a few months back for its ability to sync with my tablets. If I'm using a tablet, no more answering or sending texts/mms via my phone. I initially switched to have something I could customize more than the stock app but without the bloat of so many others but quickly came to appreciate the sync feature.
